Looking for a quick, healthy, and easy make-ahead breakfast recipe?
Among other things, eggs are an awesome way to go, and if you are tired of simply making scrambled or fried or poached eggs every single morning, then quiche is an amazing use of eggs. Quiche is easy to whip up, and works great as a make-ahead breakfast. This means you can freeze it at least a month ahead of time. Because of this, you have the option of making a few quiches and storing them in the freezer, bringing one out each time you need one. Plus, it tastes delicious!
This particular quiche recipe isn't anything fancy; merely a whipping up of eggs, milk and spices, and then poured over a couple essentials: ham and cheese. But this recipe can give you a base to build off of. You can improvise and add spinach and/or broccoli, and certainly bacon, or turkey, you name it. There are countless ways to tweak quiche to your taste.
So try this quiche recipe and let me know how you like it!
